No no ;-) I mean PCI-X.

No there are different versions of PCI and PCI-X.
PCI or PCI-X where the key is on the right side ("normal PCI cards, like 
my old Terratec 1200) => those cards work with 5V
PCI or PCI-X where the key is on the left side (this ist what I'm 
looking for) => those cards work with 3,3V

This doesn't help me,... my Dual-Board (Tyan Thunder K8WE) hast 6 slots:
-PCIe 16x (for videocard)
-PCI (with key on the right side => 5V) => would be ok for my current 
Terratec card,.. but this is much to close to the videcoard (ASUS 
7800GTX) an this would become to hot for both cards)
-PCIe 16x (for videocard, too)
-PCI-X (with key on right side => 3,3V) with up to 100MHz
-PCI-X (with key on right side => 3,3V) with up to 100MHz
-PCI-X (with key on right side => 3,3V) with up to 133MHz
